Get in the spirit of the season at Fishy Fest, and celebrate Halloween and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at Heal the Bay Aquarium. The Aquarium, located beach level of the Santa Monica Pier, has fun, family-friendly activities planned for the weekend.

Visit our Dorothy Green Room for our new, expanded deep sea experience, tip toe (if you dare!) through our bioluminescence lab and create Día de los Muertos crafts and masks.

All ghosts and goblins are invited to join a 3pm costume parade on Sunday (Oct. 27). Stepping off in front of the Aquarium, the procession will make its way along the Pier to trick-or-treat from Pier businesses.

Wanna roll up your sleeves and become a Heal the Bay Volunteer? We have five distinct volunteer programs that we offer. Each program has a specific training associated with it as well as its own volunteer roles.
Aquarium – Aquarium volunteers work at Heal the Bay Aquarium under the Santa Monica Pier. They support various public programs from interpreting at touch tanks to ensuring the success of private events. They also attend outreach events and represent Heal the Bay all over Los Angeles.

Beach – Beach cleanup volunteers support our Adopt-A-Beach and Coastal Cleanup Day programs. Our Beach Captain volunteers support Nothin’ But Sand public beach cleanups and Suits on the Sand private cleanups, and have the opportunity to attend Coastal Cleanup Day Site Captain training.

Outreach – These volunteers take Heal the Bay knowledge all over Los Angeles. Speakers Bureau volunteers present both virtually and in-person in classrooms, business meetings, at beach cleanups, festivals, and more.

Community Science – MPA Watch Volunteers survey marine protected areas (MPAs) in Malibu and Palos Verdes. They monitor, collect data, and get to walk along some of California’s most stunning beaches.

Youth – Middle and high school students register their school club with Club Heal the Bay to be part of a larger environmental advocacy community. In return, clubs receive recognition and rewards for their civic action projects. To get started as a Heal the Bay volunteer, attend a Volunteer Orientation.
